    It would help if more motorcyclists wore something more noticeable than BLACK. I believe the greatest danger from cars etc is someone turning in front of the bike or the bike being rear ended.

    Oh, and ATGATT baby! As they say, "you can wipe off sweat but you can't wipe on skin." I've actually seen a few Hardley riders wearing high viz but it's usually in the form of a t-shirt... Oh well, it's a start!
